Given: (all J2000.0, FK5) r2000,d2000 double J2000.0 RA,Dec (rad) dr2000,dd2000 double J2000.0 proper motions (rad/Jul.yr) p2000 double parallax (arcsec) v2000 double radial velocity (km/s, +ve = moving away) Returned: (all B1950.0, FK4) r1950,d1950 double B1950.0 RA,Dec (rad) dr1950,dd1950 double B1950.0 proper motions (rad/trop.yr) p1950 double parallax (arcsec) v1950 double radial velocity (km/s, +ve = moving away) Notes: 1) The proper motions in RA are dRA/dt rather than cos(Dec)*dRA/dt, and are per year rather than per century. 2) The conversion is somewhat complicated, for several reasons: . Change of standard epoch from J2000.0 to B1950.0. . An intermediate transition date of 1984 January 1.0 TT. . A change of precession model. . Change of time unit for proper motion (Julian to tropical). . FK4 positions include the E-terms of aberration, to simplify the hand computation of annual aberration. FK5 positions assume a rigorous aberration computation based on the Earth's barycentric velocity. . The E-terms also affect proper motions, and in particular cause objects at large distances to exhibit fictitious proper motions. The algorithm is based on Smith et al. (1989) and Yallop et al. (1989), which presented a matrix method due to Standish (1982) as developed by Aoki et al. (1983), using Kinoshita's development of Andoyer's post-Newcomb precession. The numerical constants from Seidelmann (1992) are used canonically. 4) In the FK4 catalog the proper motions of stars within 10 degrees of the poles do not embody differential E-terms effects and should, strictly speaking, be handled in a different manner from stars outside these regions. However, given the general lack of homogeneity of the star data available for routine astrometry, the difficulties of handling positions that may have been determined from astrometric fields spanning the polar and non- polar regions, the likelihood that the differential E-terms effect was not taken into account when allowing for proper motion in past astrometry, and the undesirability of a discontinuity in the algorithm, the decision has been made in this ERFA algorithm to include the effects of differential E-terms on the proper motions for all stars, whether polar or not. At epoch J2000.0, and measuring "on the sky" rather than in terms of RA change, the errors resulting from this simplification are less than 1 milliarcsecond in position and 1 milliarcsecond per century in proper motion.
